MDT benefits to you and your wellbeing:


"I have worked within MDT settings for a number of years now and i find the biggest benefits to a person, is the accessibility of all of that specialist support at your fingertips and when you need it without waiting times. I have also seen the benefits to support teams who get a more bespoke level of training and guidance that is beyond the training we receive as health and social care teams" - Peter Smith - Chief Operations Officer. 

"MDT's are examples of robust and safe practice because specialists in their own areas of expertise collaborate together in order to provide you with high quality care so that you can achieve the best outcomes and reach your maximum potential. You are the starring role in that journey and will be given every opportunity to contribute to your health and wellbeing by attending meetings or feeding back your wishes, hopes and dreams so that we can support you with greater compassion and understanding" - Kate Golding - Consultant nurse.
